Running Away from Security: Web App Vulnerabilities and OSINT Collide
- Micah Hoffman
- Tuesday, July 7th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm
Lately it seems like more and more of our lives are being sucked into the computer world. There are wrist-sensors for tracking our steps, phone apps that plot our workouts on maps, and sites to share our healthy-eating and weight loss progress. When people sign up for these sites, they usually use pseudonyms or the sites give them a unique numbered ID to keep their information "private".
How hard would it be to connect a person's step-counting, diet history and other info on these health sites to their real lives? Are businesses using these sites for non-fitness purposes?
This talk will show weaknesses in several web applications used for health and exercise tracking and reveal [spoiler alert] how trivial it is to find the real people behind the "private" accounts.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
